5 Ways to Avoid Burnout From Practically ANYTHING

I would like to share with you just a few ways that so many people have gone from feeling so alive to working themselves to the point of burnout.  Share these 5 simple ways to avoid burnout from anything and start feeling alive again.  

1. Write out a Mission Statement

mission statement
So quickly this world has turned our dreams, goals, and hearts desire into a complete rat race.  We have all at some point in our lives have lost focus of what we really want out of life.  So quickly you find yourself stuck in another meeting, or just spending hours behind that computer.  Slowly we start slipping in the things that really matter or even that brings us alive.  Want those back.
Block out a schedule amount of time away.  Simple time away from everything and write out a complete mission statement for your life, company, or just your purpose. Compiling something like will help bring back that focus and having it written down is a must.  Take the time and few steps back to write your mission statement.

2.  Complete Get Away and Evaluate

Make sure your schedule at least one full day if not a weekend.  To get away either by yourself and your team.  I would personally suggest to get away by yourself if all possible.  Be honest with yourself, and really take some time management evaluation.
Being able to take these times can truly help you discover what could be needed next in your business, career, or even family.  The biggest thing is being true to yourself when truly examining your current schedule.

3. Take a True Vacation

This means actually taking the time to go and do an actual vacation.  This could be different for everything, but the most important is “NO WORK”. Absolutely take no work, no phone calls, no emails.
Being able to relax and not have any work on your mind through a whole vacation could you wonders.  This means to make sure you have things scheduled out, and have a complete vacation from start to finish. Being disciplined in this area is a very important aspect from not getting burnt out.

4. Create Healthy Morning Routine

This could be taking the extra time to get your nose in a good book, just take the quiet time by yourself, or just getting in that early morning work out.  Whatever is it that you need to become more disciplined and structured to have that great and refreshing starts to your morning find them and start doing them.
This might mean for you to slow down your mornings.  There is nothing worst in my opinion to be rushing out the door, feeling hurried all morning, or even skipping breakfast to start your day of on the wrong foot.  So slow down and start creating that healthy morning routine today.

5. Go do something adventurous

There is not many other things that will make you fill more alive than living out some adventure.  Dig deep within and start discovering some of those favorite dreams, hobbies, or even simply trying something new and adventurous.
Think back to when you had more time or before you become that workaholic and start thinking of all the fun things you would do that make you feel alive. That’s your adventure, and go and do more of that.  It’s just that simple.
What are some of the ways you keep from getting burnout.  Please share them in the comment section below.

    Hi Eric,

    This is my first time visiting your site and I really enjoyed this post! I think it is very important to enjoy what you do, travel, do something adventurous and meet inspiring and like-minded people to avoid burnout. To have a mission statement written out or a single motivation purpose for why you get up each day also helps, and of course a healthy morning routine with some exercise daily.

    Thanks for sharing this with us!

    Keep up the good work :)

    Hi Eric

    This is something my better half raised just last night.

    Apparently I work too much and she’s worried I’ll burn out. Personally I love my job so I dont see that there is an issue but I have listened to her advice and am making some changes.

    The most notable is setting a time to finish work and sticking to it.

    At this moment I truly believe I should be doing this. When being the bread winner and the go to guy it becomes a burden with you knowing it, I know it is a lot of responsibility to be expected to deliver but how can someone deliver if they don’t have the drive anymore?

    Thank you for taking the time out to share,

    Taking a little time out for yourself in the mornings is a must. It’s probably the one thing that keeps me sane. I read the news, watch a little TV, or read a few pages of a book. It definitely helps to get through the day.

    Best pieces of advice I’ve read over the past couple of months! As a person who’s been having a stressful lifestyle for more than a couple of years, I think these are the only getaways that can still make you feel alive.

    I often find myself unmotivated which in-turn makes me do less work. While I say to myself that I should be working hard, I just find something else to do with my time and then get annoyed afterwards for putting things off.

    I think I’m just mentally weak lol

    yes i do seriously believe that we all do need time ourself, we get so caught up especially since it seems that everything is about time or timed. like we to get to a certain place at a particular time, have to drop kids off at a particular time and list goes on and on , we end up getting sick from stress and time still goes on, the point is, we need to stop sometimes and tune everything out.
